Upon entering our office, we will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Dohrmann to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Dohrmann to learn more about you, your condition, and how chiropractic & acupuncture can help meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Dohrmann will perform a complete examination, specifically testing the health of your spine. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as needed. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays,your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Your doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of the first visit, Dr. Dohrmann may choose to give you a relief treatment depending on the complexity of your case. Otherwise he may have you schedule a follow-up visit the next day to review findings and discuss treatment
Once treatment goals have been accomplished, many of our patients choose to continue regular care for preventative maintenance purposes. Although not necessary or mandatory, many patients feel they save money in the long run and optimize their natural health by receiving wellness treatments.
